DNC Chair revives old meme: Tea Party still to blame for Tucson shooting

posted at 4:50 pm on January 11, 2012 by Tina Korbe

If you thought we’d made it safely through the anniversary of the tragedy in Tucson without a revival of the accusation that Tea Party rhetoric was somehow to blame for the mental instability of shooter Jared Loughner, think again. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz couldn’t let this time of commemoration pass without suggesting to anyone who will listen to her that incivility has increased with the rise of the Tea Party — and that heated political rhetoric played at least some part in Rep. Gabby Giffords’ horrific ordeal. Joel Gehrke relates:

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., speaking in New Hampshire this morning, reminded her audience of the tragic Tucson shooting last year — and also insinuated that the Tea Party, which she said regards political opponents as “the enemy,” has enhanced divisiveness in Congress and had something to do with the shooting, at least indirectly.

“We need to make sure that we tone things down, particularly in light of the Tucson tragedy from a year ago, where my very good friend, Gabby Giffords — who is doing really well, by the way, — [was shot],” Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair said during a “Politics and Eggs” forum this morning. “The discourse in America, the discourse in Congress in particular . . . has really changed, I’ll tell you. I hesitate to place blame, but I have noticed it take a very precipitous turn towards edginess and lack of civility with the growth of the Tea Party movement.”

Having brought up the Giffords attack as a political cudgel, Wasserman Schultz doubled down on that attack. “You had town hall meetings that they tried to take over, and you saw some their conduct at those tea party meetings,” Wasserman Schultz said today. “When they come and disagree with you, you’re not just wrong, you’re the enemy.”

If Wasserman Schultz’ comments capture reality at all it is only insofar as the rise of the Tea Party has also — naturally — coincided with the rise of Tea Party opponents, whose rhetoric is frequently edgy and uncivil. Remember when …

  • DWS herself said Republicans “literally” want to drag the country “back to Jim Crow days”?
  • Rep. Andre Carson said Tea Partiers want to see minorities “hanging on a tree”?
  • Rep. Maxine Waters said the Tea Party could go straight to hell?
  • Rep. Frederica Wilson called the Tea Party “the real enemy”?

Shall I go on? Debbie Downer is in serious denial about who is responsible for whatever rise in heated rhetoric has occurred since the Tea Party first appeared on the national stage. It’d be nice if the incivility would stop — but, at a bare minimum, the hypocrisy has to.

There really are people out there who believe the Tea Party is composed of trigger happy racist nazis. They are told this time and time again and they buy it.

So tactics-wise, it’s probably an ok move by Debs.

We can count on the Dems to exploit certain anniversaries– Black History Month and MLK’s birthday and now the Tuscon shootings (even though they were not prompted by political differences). These emotional events are their bread and butter.

It’s odd that the anniversary of 9/11 was off the table until it became Obama’s revisionist “Day of Service” celebration, isn’t it?

Did anyone at the Tea Party shoot someone? Nope. Did anyone at the Tea Party threaten Obama’s life? Nope. An actual death threat to Obama came from a guy hanging out with the Occupiers. Do you know what everyone said about the guy who brought an assault rifle to a rally? No, you weren’t here when people made comments about it. If you have no evidence that the Tea Party caused or encouraged violence, then zip it.

I see people daily walking into places of business openly carrying and no one gives it a second thought. Just because you are in abject terror on someone carrying a gun doesn’t mean they are out to get you. You need to get some treatment for that paranoia.

“You had town hall meetings that they tried to take over, and you saw some their conduct at those tea party meetings,”

True story. In August 2009 during the one and only townhall meeting Al Green – D Tx09 arranged he bussed in about 1,200 SEIU to a total crowd of 2,000. They thought they had it well scripted but I put a traditionally black name on the card for questions and eventually got picked. I asked three questions, 1) could he name a federal program that came in on budget, 2) could he explain using the numbers he cited to open the meeting how we we’re going to pay for the additional 45 million people he said would get insurance using that same money under ObamaCare, 3) how will a young doctor coming out of medical school ever expect to pay off his student loans getting medicare rates?

It shut down the meeting and ended with him screaming at me and his union folks chanting “Yes we can!” It was hilarious and frightening at the same time.

The Left continues to bash the right nonsensically since they can’t applaud anything the Democrats have done the past few years. I wonder what Giffords thinks about DWS’s inane comment. JetBoy on January 11, 2012 at 4:57 PM

This amuses me, and why would the tea party pretend, they been brandishing guns at rallies and speaking of violent overthrow of Obama. I remember a tea party but job bringing an assult riffle machine gun to Obama town hall, he was stopped outside but was allowed to brandish that weapon in public to the terror of all standby. NutJobs, I mean how many have been arrested for plotting to attack the president. Why pretend. It’s not like you did condem it if you saw it.

So Axelrod defends Jeremiah Wright today and Debbie Dunce wants to rehash Tucson. These morons are on a roll. Let’s go for the trifecta: I look for Holder to come out any minute and reiterate how he knew nothing about Fast and Furious, or perhaps Obama will give a speech about Solyndra’s profitability.

The shooter was a (likely) paranoid schizophrenic whose syndrome didn’t manifest noticeably enough before his eighteenth birthday, when nobody could commit him or make him take his meds.

Want fault? It’s his—sort of.

Excuse my typo, I’m on my phone until I get home. Its hard to edit on these small thumb screens.

But it wasn’t just one guy or one incident.

You worry about someone carrying a gun legally and you are texting while driving. I hope I am wrong about my assumption that you are driving. If I am not much hypocrisy in your posts because you are a greater risk to innocent individuals than I am when I openly carry.

Its all they’ve got. Anger, hatred, and lies. She has no idea what truth is.

Good catch. Legally carrying a weapon in an open carry state is not brandishing it.
